A classroom of excited Las Vegas elementary school students were caught on camera jumping with joy after their teacher told them the mask mandate had been lifted.
‘Starting tomorrow, we don’t have to wear masks anymore,’ the teacher said Thursday as she was met with roaring screams and applause from her young pupils. 
The teacher claimed one of her students was so ecstatic by the move that he was ‘about to throw his chair out the window’.
Nevada became the latest blue state to drop indoor mask mandates amid plummeting coronavirus infection levels. Daily cases in the U.S. are down 40 percent over the past week, from 356,722 per day to 207,539. Every one of the 50 U.S. states is recording a decline in cases over the past two weeks, with 44 having cases slash in half over the last fortnight.
However, despite the decline in case positivity federal leaders have been hesitant to change guidelines, with President Joe Biden arguing Thursday it was probably ‘premature’ to lift indoor mask mandates.
‘I’ve committed that I would follow the science as put forward by the CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] and federal people and I think it’s probably premature, but it’s, you know, it’s a tough call,’ he said during an interview with NBC News.
Masks in schools have been the most controversial of all pandemic-related policies, with parents are saying the restriction hurts their ability to socialize and forcing children to wear a face covering all day in class is uncomfortable.  
Parents and students nationwide are continuing to rally against the mask mandates and urge legislators to lift restrictions. In addition to protesting, some activists have filed lawsuits against their local and state officials, deeming the mandates are illegal and harmful to children.

Gov. Steve Sisolak of Nevada lifted his statewide mask mandate Thursday after outlining how the number of hospitalizations had dropped from the state’s peak.
‘Given all of these updates, and the tools that we now have, now is the appropriate time for me to announce that Nevada will rescind mask mandates effective immediately,’ he told news conference conducted via Zoom. ‘Masks will no longer be required in public places.’
However, he added that people would still be required to wear masks in certain places, such as healthcare facilities. 
Sisolak’s decision came after a slew of blue states in the northeast on Wednesday chose to drop masks in schools. 
Connecticut Gov Ned Lamont, whose state made the choice alongside New Jersey, Delaware and Massachusetts, told Squawk Box on Thursday that it was a joint decision.
‘We worked on this together as Governors throughout the region. We thought this is a good time,’ Lamont said.
Meanwhile, neighboring New York – along with California and Illinois – are lifting indoor masking requirements, but extending the requirement for schools, a move that has outraged parents and students.   
Parents assembled in New York City Friday demanding Gov. Kathy Hochul lift her ‘hypocritical’ mandate requiring children to be masked in schools, especially since children face little risk from the virus, with the CDC reporting that minors make up less than 0.1 percent of U.S. COVID deaths.

States that have DROPPED masks this week

California – On February 15, vaccinated residents will no longer have to wear masks in public indoor settings. Masks will still be required in schools.
Connecticut – On February 28, masks will no longer be required in schools
Delaware – On February 11, a mask mandate for all indoor public places except schools will end. The mandate for schools will be lifted on March 31
Illinois – On February 28, a mask mandate for all indoor public places will be lifted. Masks will still be required in schools 
Massachusetts – On February 28, masks will no longer be required in schools
Nevada – On February 10, the state’s public and school mask mandate was lifted 
New Jersey – On March 7, masks will no longer be required in schools
New York – On February 10, the state’s mask mandate for indoor public places as lifted. Masks are still required in schools
Oregon – On March 31, the state plans to allow its indoor mask mandate to expire, which includes schools
Rhode Island – On February 11, the state’s indoor mask mandate expires. Masks will no longer be required in schools starting March 4. 

Regardless, Biden and other federal leaders are standing by their recommendation to mask kids in schools. 
‘When I got in office only 46 percent of schools were opened, now 98 percent of them are open and they’re wearing masks,’ Biden said. 
‘What’s happening is every day that goes by children are more protected. We’re now on the verge of being able to have shots for children under the age of seven and young children and and so the more protection they have, probably you’re going to see less and less requirement to have the mask,’ he said.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki noted at her Wednesday briefing that CDC continues to recommend masking during indoor congregate settings for areas where transmission is high – which currently includes most of the country.  
‘We owe it to our children to make sure that they can safely stay in school,’ CDC Director Rochelle Walensky told WYPR earlier this week.
‘Right now, that includes masking. We’ve seen outbreaks that have occurred in communities where students were not masked in schools and had to close. … And much of our guidance is based on the amount of community transmission.’  
State and local officials are driving decisions on school masking, although the American Rescue Plan has provided funds for safety improvements and testing. Some academics have weighed in with cautions about the social and developmental impacts of long-term masking. 
U.S. covid infections are dropping as the nation works its way through the omicron surge, although hospitalizations are still high, as are death rates, which stood at 2,300 based on a seven-day moving average Thursday.
The seven-day daily average of infections was about 247,000 cases per day Wednesday – down 44 percent from a week ago.
